Annyeong, ni hao :)
I am a Dramafan from Germany. I began watching Dramas in 2010. At first I watched only J-Dramas, but since 2012 I love Korean Dramas more. I mostly watch Korean Dramas because they doesn't have too many Episodes. I am also watching Chinese and Taiwanese Dramas, because they have a hand for good Melodramas, even though many could have lesser Episodes.
Many of my favourite Korean Dramas didn't do well in Korea, so I gave up to watch a drama because of the ratings.
My favourite Genres:
Melodrama/Drama: I love it, because it is one of the most difficult Genres for Actors.
Romantic: The usual genre, right?
Crime/Action: The best of these dramas are OCN Dramas. I wished there would be OCN (or cable) Award shows, too... I mean they have so good dramas.
Saeguk (Korea): I have a love-hate Relationship with this. The Acting has to be good even though the Script is good.
Romantic-Comedy: I have a Love-Hate Relationship with rom-com, too.All of it has to be perfect so that I like such a drama.
Weekend Drama: Love-Hate Relationship, too. They have too many Episodes, but I am watching the ones from KBS.
My Favourite Actors and Actors I like (my lists):
My favourite Actor is Yang Sejong. I love him since Duel, because he is one of the most talented Actors out there. But because I have other favourite Actors I made lists with Actors I favor and like...
1. My favourite Actors. I will watch everything with them even though there are aspects I don't like. Exceptions could be daily dramas, Dramas with 50 Ep. (1 h/Ep.) and a genre I dislike. I try to watch their Dramas when they are airing and they mostly have the Priority "High"
2. Honestly, I don't know where exactly the difference to 1. is..I think its likely the same. Favourite Actors...But I don't try every time to watch the dramas when they are airing. Priority "High" or "Medium"
3. I like them and their acting and I plan to watch their works, but It could happen that I will skip some scenes. Priority: "Medium"
4. Actors who are good, but I have to watch more projects. Priority: "Medium" or "Low"
5. Actors who have potenzial, but I have to watch more dramas with them. Most of them are unknown but I hope they get a little more recognition. Priority: "Medium" or "Low"
My opinion of Dramas I am watching:
A Pledge to God: I like the drama but...I don't know if 48 ep (24 hrs) aren't too many-.-
Children f Nobody: This drama is one of my favourites I am watching right now :)
Clean with Passion for now: It is very funny, maybe too funny for me but the Acting is excellent.
Encounter: I want to drop it but the Acting of the Main Actors is so good, I will finish it...I have a love-hat relationship with this drama...
Heart Surgeons: The Drama is good, the Cast is very good.
Memories of the Alhambra: My 2nd favourite Drama I am watching at the Moment. Hyun Bins Acting is so good *-*
My Strange Hero: The Story seems interesting, but why is it a revenge drama for Yoo Seungho again?
Priest: I am happy I did't watched "The Guest" before this.
SKY Castle: The Young Actors are sooo good, I like the Drama very much.
The Last Empress: I don't like Jang Nara, but Choi Jinhyuk is one of my faves, so I am watching this. The Story is...okay
Lists of "Dramas, I don't know if I will watch them":
There are many reasons possible:
- One of the Main Actors is on my Blacklist
- There are no subs to find
- The Plot seems not too interesting, but the Cast...
- Too many Episodes
My Rating System:
Honestly I'm not really interested in the Rating of a drama by other Watchers because I want to make me my own Picture of a drama. For me, a good Drama must have: A Good Storyline and a Good Cast, the Main Characters need to have a good chemistry. If a drama has this, I decide how I rate the drama because of the ending, because many drama endings suck...
10 Amazing! Story, Acting and chemistry are all excellent. I don't have anything to complain.
9-9.5 Perfect, but not Amazing
8-8.5 Very good Drama, but the Story isn't satisfying. Acting and Chemistry has to be very good.
7-7.5 The Drama was good, but the Story is lame (Hopefully the Actors were very good).
6-6.5 Okay, It is good that it ended.
0-5.5 I'm out
